Accidentally lost My Documents folder on Windows 7
Okay I'll explain what happened.
I have two drives okay, an SSD for the OS and a HDD for everything else. I have moved everything that isn't needed on the SSD to the HDD.
Now, I created a users folder on the HDD, to hold all the Desktop and Download folders and such so they don't clog up the SSD.
However, in one particular case I had to have my My Documents folder on the SSD.
So I attempted to move it back on the users folder that was on the SSD, but the My Documents folder completely replaced my User folder on the SSD (which was Michael). So then I had a users folder named My Documents instead of Michael. I managed to SOMEHOW move a folder that was supposedly My Documents back over to the HDD, but all my things still get redirected to the users folder on the SSD that was replaced by my Documents.
My question is, how to I restore my original My Documents folder (or create a new one...?) and stop things getting redirected to the users folder?
Sorry for the long text, hope it wasn't too much.
Fast and detailed help would be greatly appreciated

Option two of Restore Default Location worked like a charm!
Got a new Documents folder, then I moved it to the HDD with all the other users folders.
Thanks a heap for linking the tutorials guys, I was considering making an entirely new user just to fix it. It was annoying me THAT much.
